Expat Experience: Sharon F, Brasilia

Post Posted: Thu Aug 29, 2013 5:43 pm

My name is Sharon F. and my family and I currently live in the metro DC area, but originally we are from Miami, Florida. I honestly thought living and growing up in Miami, a diverse multicultural city prepared me for what it would be like to live overseas. Boy was I wrong. Perhaps if it was just my hubby and I, maybe then we would have been prepared… but when we moved to Brazil my son was only 5 and my daughter was not even 3 years old. That said, it was a wonderful experience that I will always treasure.

My husband is a United States Federal Law Enforcement officer who speaks Spanish and Portuguese besides English. Because of his language skills, he was being sent overseas to Brazil a lot to work...
